Power to the Pink Suit

POWER. SUIT. We know them. We love them. Some of our favorite looks involve incredible tailoring. And this look is by no means an exception. In fact, this pink suit from Current Air has an energy all on its own. Carrie really embodied that badass, feminine energy that this suit sets the stage for. And we get it. Menswear, while being incredibly on trend, can be a bit of an intimidating fashion leap for some. And then when you factor in a head-to-toe bright pink, some may hesitate. And, our hope is that you will take a little risk and let your inner boss shine loud (and assertive!) and proud. Perhaps that means just getting a tailored blazer as a start. Or maybe that means taking these pin-stripe pants into the dressing room, doing a quiet dance alone, and then coming out to have a look in the big shop mirror. Whatever that means, we hope you will tap into your inner freakin’ bad ass, because she is in there, and we love her!

Fall Basics

How I love this shirt! It’s a piece that 1/2 the Minx staff own:  super soft and the perfect layering element. What to wear with said perfect top? Just burrow into a cozy grey cardi and slide on a lean pair of Paige jeggings for a complete, stylish fall look.
